Prior to leading the NAACP President Brooks (STH ’87) led the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice where he directed the Institute’s successful efforts to win the passage of three landmark prisoner reentry bills in 2010, hailed by The New York Times as, “a model for the rest of the nation.” He has also served as Executive Director of the Fair Housing Council of Greater Washington, Vice-Chair of the New Jersey Public Broadcasting Authority, Second Vice-Chair of the East Orange General Hospital Board of Trustees. His 1987 MDiv from BUSTH focused in social ethics and systematic theology. This event is free and open to the public due to the generous support of the Lowell Institute.
